Clemson-Alabama, Oklahoma-Georgia set for playoff semis

The College Football Playoff Committee said the 31-point loss to the University of the Iowa was one of the factors why Ohio State was not selected for the tournament.

Wisconsin checked in at #6 nationally in the AP Poll, Coaches Poll, and the College Football Playoff. Clemson is making its third appearance. The crux of his argument: The Big Ten plays nine conference games and had the fewest matchups (three) with FCS opponents among Power Five conferences. Before the Crimson Tide's road loss at Auburn, they had been ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in every edition of this year's playoff rankings. This is Oklahoma's second appearance, and the first time for Georgia.

After 13 weeks of college football and one Conference Championship Weekend, the final College Football Playoff Rankings were revealed.

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett threw touchdown passes and two interceptions in the win against the Badgers. The Tigers were the hottest team in the country in November, taking down two No. 1 teams at home, so a 26-14 loss to Auburn certainly isn't the worst loss among the teams in the playoff field. Well, we found out the answer Sunday afternoon.

The College Football Playoff committee sent the Crimson Tide to a fourth straight semifinal even after sitting out the SEC title game.
